CFMoto 800MT Sport and 800MT Touring. Coming to Italy – News
There is a lot of waiting around CFMoto 800MT, the Adventure built in China and which embeds an engine strictly derived from the famous KTM LC8c of the KTM 790 series.
Available in two versions, 800MT Sport with aluminum alloy spoked wheels, e 800MT Touring, with spoked wheels and trio of bags made of aluminum, the two-cylinder CFMoto has already made known its main characteristics and sales prices in China and Australia.
The site ofItalian importer is the first in Europe to list them in the list of available models, but with the warning “Coming soon“.
Given the importance of the adventure segment in Italy it is a good operation, what enthusiasts now expect is to know the arrival times for sale and price.
For our part, we can tell you that in Australia they cost A $ 12,990 for the Sport and $ 13,990 for the Touring, or the equivalent of 8,280 and 9,030 euros at current exchange rates.
If it helps, the new one 700CL-X, which is on sale with us at 6,490 euros, in Australia, it costs 6 120. Of course, do not rush with the calculator because other commercial logic also comes into play to determine the prices, however the 800MT could arrive with a very interesting quote also from us.
We forgot, in Australia they are giving the arrival of two 800 for sale in the next summer – cold season in this hemisphere – in Europe they could therefore perhaps arrive earlier: we will probably already know during EICMA, when we see the bikes.
